Damp as an Otter's Pocket

Flood planes of the River Derwent doing their thing
I had not done this 'from the door' route since the monsoon season started. Part of the run is alongside the Derwent and most years it floods. Unsurprisingly, this year it is full on, otter's pocket.

 Time to get wet.

Up to the mut's armpits = just below my knees.

Billys tribute to; Black Bag, the Faithful Border Bin Liner.
Quickly lad. The footpath is flooded and that stick is in trouble.

Phew that was close! Well done lad the stick is saved. 


  1. Looks like it was saved to within an inch of its life!
    Wet wild and windy's all very well, but I'm starting to hanker after a bit of sun now.
    Must be getting all soft and southern.......

    1. Yeah, I am getting bored of washing mud off the dog too.
